I've combined three previous posts into a cogent and magnificent piece over on my blog at Psychology Today:

  2. Yes, a brilliant post Emily. I wonder if people who read only this article might wonder what you think qualifies as low cholesterol, and perhaps why you consider low a bad alternative to 'high' (if you do)?

  3. Dr. K - I saw that one! Pretty amazing, eh? Check my map for schizophrenia round up.

    Nick - I'm a little hamstrung by the data, and I also didn't feel like stabbing the lipid hypothesis to death in the midst of combining all those posts (stabbing the lipid hypothesis is tiring work) - but total cholesterol higher than 160 seems like a good idea for those with high cholesterol who, for whatever bizarre reason, are aiming to lower it ;-). Hopefully Kurt will slay the lipid hypothesis over there as metabolism and the overall health picture is more his bag. I'm just laying the groundwork for my devastating pattern of data about micronutrients, brain structure, and energetics...

    Oh goodie, I can hardly contain myself! So good to see the Paleo bent being propagated further and futher into the 'mainstream'!
